Adelphi University's New Program Caps Transfer Students' Annual Tuition at $10K
The initiative will support transfer students from the tri-state area
Garden City, NY (03/13/2023) — Adelphi University has announced an exciting initiative to attract and support transfer students from the tri-state area - New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The only program of its kind in New York, the new Transfer Tuition Guarantee is a special scholarship and aid program for high-achieving transfer students, ensuring that their tuition will be $10,000 or less annually for up to four years of coursework leading to a bachelor's degree.
"This program is ideal for students who went off to school but didn't find the right fit, are completing their program at a local community college, or have been out of college for a while but are ready to resume their degree program," said Kristen Capezza, MBA '12, Adelphi's Vice President of Enrollment Management and University Communications. "Long-recognized for our commitment to helping students transfer with ease, Adelphi is now presenting high-achieving students with an even more affordable opportunity to attend a private university, inclusive of more than 70 academic offerings, a vibrant student life and extraordinary career preparation, at a tuition cost that's comparable to a public institution."
To be eligible for the tuition guarantee as a transfer student, students must have at least a 3.5. cumulative GPA from any college-level work completed after high school, have residency in New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut, and file a FAFSA resulting in an expected family contribution (EFC) at or below 100,000. They must plan to enroll full-time, and the tuition covers fall and spring semesters only (excluding summer).
Deadlines for admission and financial aid application submission to the Transfer Tuition Guarantee program are June 1 for fall admission and November 1 for spring admission.
"Adelphi's small classes and big opportunities are now a reality for students who may have thought a private school education was out of reach for their family," said Shawana Singletary, Assistant Vice President and Chief Enrollment Officer at Adelphi. "This program is designed to offer access and affordability for students who want to transfer into Adelphi."
Students who transfer to Adelphi may also be eligible for federal aid programs - and for New York residents, state aid programs - and will receive those funds in addition to the tuition guarantee, lowering annual tuition and fees to below $10,000.
Students who are not eligible for the Tuition Guarantee program may still qualify for generous merit scholarships and need-based grants.
